News from the Digital Archives

July 1, 2016: New scanned material, probably the last we reach on this side of summer vacation: Provisions Tariffs etc. from the archive Røros Copper Works (SAT). Johan Koren's diary from Belgica Expedition 1897-1899 and his book with drawings of birds and seals from the archive Koren family (RA). We remind our new feature that displays the new scanned material 7, 14 or 30 days , which you will find at the bottom of the Home page of scanned archives. For the transcribed sources there is an updated list of new contributions under Latest 100 .

June 20, 2016: We start the week with both scanned and transcribed sources. You find a complete list of the transcribed sources in the Most Recent 100. For the scanned sources, there are mainly 1875 Census material: all of Vestfold county (unfortunately without the main census lists so you will have to do some browsing to find the houses you are looking for) and the parishes Bud, Vanylven, Norddal and Næsna in Møre og Romsdal county

June 10, 2016: The scanned images of censuses will be transferred to our new service for scanned archive materiale from Monday June 13, 12 o'clock CET. The images are already available on the new site, but on Monday we close the old site. This means all links to the old site will be redirected to the same images on the new site. 

We have also published more scanned sources: 11 additional protocols for the customs account books from Holmestrand, Langesund, Molde, Kristiansund and Trondheim. Now there are 255 protocols available.

June 9, 2016: More transcribed church records are available for search - see the Most Recent 100. In addition, scanned protocols for civil weddings are available for Kristiansand (Vest-Agder county), Jæren (Rogaland county), Sandnes (Rogaland county), Hafrsfjord (Rogaland county), Ryfylke (Rogaland county) and Karmsund (Rogaland county).
